This is definitely a "hidden gem" that shouldn't be missed if you fit it in. Very large site with lots of of things to see as well as an excellent museum.

The plateau on which the rather sizeable Roman city of Conimbriga was built has only been 17% excavated at this time. Yet the recovery and restorations are excellent for history buffs and amateur archeologists. The museum is superb, which well-planned exhibits and clear explanations of...More

Probably the most extensive and well laid out Roman town outside of Italy, Conimbriga is well worth the visit two miles south of Coimbra. Not only several baths that give you a good idea of the lay out of 2nd C roman baths, but also...More

Only 17% of huge site has been excavated. Defensive walls 12 feet thick, portions of the Roman road originally connecting Lisbon to Braga, partially reconstructed Forum and more. Wonderfully preserved mosaics with lovely added collection of Roman artifacts (glass, coins, pottery, etc.,) in well appointed...More

We made the trip here on the way to Coimbra because we had never seen Roman ruins before. The striking thing about them is in the covered area, the so-called House of the Fountains - beautiful mosaics. They date from 193 to 235 AD. Except...More

Wow. An absolute must see. We were traveling from Coimbra to Porta and stopped by here for a couple of hours. Well worth it. Extensive ruins, amazing mosaic floors. Definitely worth a detour
